Winter Wishes 2021

All Day

Branham High School

December 6th-10th

Event Overview



Winter Wishes is approaching us, and there’s important information you should know! Winter Wishes is an annual event held at Branham high school intended to serve the student body, uplift community members, and unite the Branham community at large. Every year, the student body makes wishes — ranging from AP exam payments to classroom supplies for a teacher to a new laptop! Whether it be for a friend, family member, or themselves, each and every Bruin has a unique and special story behind their wish. We intend to support, uplift, and celebrate our Bruins and community members through the wish-granting process in order to hold an extra magical rally and winter week for our Bruins this year. However, the wish-granting process is not possible without donations from our community. We accept monetary and item-based donations through the following links and appreciate any contributions. Additionally, information regarding the week’s activities, spirit days, and fundraisers can be found below.
